I am an applied mathematician, and I joined the faculty of the Statistics Department at University of Chicago in January 2016, where I contribute to the Computational and Applied Mathematics Initiative (CAMI). Before coming here, I was a professor in the Department of Engineering Sciences and Applied Mathematics at Northwestern University for more than 20 years.
